This condition is more commonly known as shaving bumps, and it occurs generally in those who have curly hair growing in the beard region. When extremely curly hair grows back into the skin, this problem occurs. Inflammation occurs and an infection may develop when the newly cut, sharp edge of a hair enters the skin again. Pustules are formed in the beard area. The neck and the cheeks are the areas which are most commonly affected by Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. Using an electric shaver might help to prevent this. Shaving a certain area with the same kind of strokes should also be avoided.
HOW IS PSEUDOFOLLICULITIS BARBAE DIAGNOSED?
When all other types of treatment fail, patients of Pseudofolliculitis Barbae are recommended a laser hair removal.
